Madison & Cole’s Love Story:
We met at Penn State (Madison was a sophomore and Cole was a Junior) through an organization we were both involved in as campus tour guides. You know how sororities/fraternities have Bigs and Littles? Well Cole was my Big in this particular organization and about six months after meeting we started dating. He was and is a charmer!
On April 27, 2019 at Dover Hall Estate, Madison and Cole said I do! That day could not have been more perfect! Madison truly had the best team to make sure the day ran smoothly and that it did! When Madison first reached out to me about photographing her wedding I couldn’t help but think, oh my goodness Dover Hall?! Yes, one of my all time favorite venue’s to photograph! Seriously, the entire estate is breathtaking. Little did I know that Madison is a gem and I truly got so incredibly lucky to get to know the two of them! Madison is the type of gal that knows what she wants and goes out to get it! Which, I feel as though we are similar in that sense.
Her attention to detail for the day was nothing short of amazing and she truly put so much effort into every single piece of her wedding day puzzle. That entire day you could tell she was genuinely taking everything all in and not rushing through each moment. I loved that! Sometimes it is easy to get excited and quickly keep moving but Madison moved through her day with grace. Cole was the sweetest with Madison, just enjoying her company and you could read the love he has for her in his eyes. Gosh, their day truly felt like I was watching the best kind of romantic film! I do love fairytales!
Her father immediately started crying as soon as he saw her and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t tearing up behind my camera while capturing their first look! Then soon after Cole saw Madison for the first time in her gorgeous Miss Hayley Paige gown!!
She is so stunning!!
During their reception, Madison surprised Cole with their school mascot and it was THE coolest to experience! Cole was very surprised and all the wedding guests were so pumped up!
Madison & Cole,
Thank you so much for choosing me to capture your best day ever! I cannot begin to explain how much it meant to me! I truly had the best time with you two and all your family and friends! Everyone was so sweet and was always checking up on me! The love throughout the day really showed and I loved every second of it! These are just to hold ya over until I finish your gallery so I hope you enjoyed reliving your day in stills!
With love and a happy heart,
